Let’s start with the C language first.
The first thing is to get your computer set up so that you have a compiler to compile C.
This post will use the GNU C and if you prefer, you can set up the Visual Studio shown in a later post.
GNU (Geez, Not Unix) C compiler can be downloaded from http://mingw.com. Visit the website and download the MinGW installation manager.
From the installation manager download gcc-core, gcc-g++, binutils, and the MinGW runtime. Next set the path of the windows to the bin directory of MinGW.
Now that you have the environment set up, you can write your first C program.
